According to PUNCH, Tunde Agbaje is the cousin of Jimi Agbaje, Lagos State governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2015 gubernatorial election, and the said lady crush is the daughter of a Former Governor of a state in the South-South region of Nigeria.
Tunde Agbaje was reportedly received on Friday, October 21, by the Chief Security Officer of the Ahmadu Bello University, Col. J.K. Tukur; and the protocol office of the Emir of Zaria.
Abubakar Ladan, the head of the protocol office of the Emir of Zaria confirmed that Agbaje was received at the palace of the Emir, although in the absence of the Emir.
Tunde shares his story of how he met Sharon, her rejection after he professed love for her and his decision to do “what no man can do for her.”
Tunde Agbaje shares his story
“I was with my friends sometime in 2010 and while we were discussing about ladies, I said I wished God would just show me my wife anytime soon.
“About five minutes later, we were hungry and I went to get food on Awolowo Road. It was my first day at that eatery. I was waiting to be served when she walked in. Coincidentally, that day was also her first day there. I observed that there was a love image at the back of the trousers she put on.
“She approached me and asked what she could buy and I advised her. We later exchanged contacts and became friends. That was how my love for her started growing. We met several times afterward.
“I chose to trek to Zaria because her parents dated for six years in ABU, Zaria, before they got married. I didn’t let my parents know and to ensure I was not disturbed, I changed my SIM card.
“I took a tracker along with me to monitor my movements. I never took a bus at any time. It was a tough task and I even collapsed some of the times. I took off from Ketu on October 2 and arrived in Zaria on Thursday, October 20, around 4.15pm.
“I have no regret for what I have done. I have proved my love for her, even though she didn’t reciprocate my feeling. I believe even if she gets married to another person, nobody will ever be able to do what I did for her,” Agbaje added.
Contrary to Tunde’s story, Sharon said she met him in a church and has turned him down severally when he asked for her friendship, Punch reports.
“Tunde Agbaje has been harassing and stalking me for the past six years and as far as I am concerned, this is just a new escapade in a series of his harassment,” Sharon explains.
“I met Tunde at a church when I was living in Lagos and we were both part of the youth ministry. He never had a friendship, let alone a relationship, with me. I was in a music group and some of the youths had my phone number, including him.
“He later found out where I lived and came to my house. My mum warned him to leave me alone, but he refused. I changed my phone number and moved to the US, but I don’t know how he got my contact. I have stopped picking calls from Nigeria because of him.
“He later called me and said he was going to trek to prove his love for me in a non-violent way and I told him not to do it because he could die. I said that not because I cared, but just for Christian charity.
“This guy is mentally unstable, because how can you still be stalking a woman who has turned you down for six years?” she said.
This is just one of the numerous cases of love gone wrong.
